    “I booked this 7 day luxury apartment in the Cotswolds to wind down from a very stressful job.”

    Prior to arriving I had to ring Manor Cottages 3 times as the code for the apartment door was not on file or in any of the information. When they eventually rang back, they agreed the information was missing, and sent me the code.

    Prior to arriving I had to ring Manor Cottages 3 times as the code for the apartment door was not on file or in any of the information. When they eventually rang back, they agreed the information was missing, and sent me the code. Upon arrival the apartment was very clean and inside luxury as advertised; however, this is where my stress release went through the roof. There was no welcome pack to explain anything, there was no WiFi code, there was passes on the table, which where for what? We worked out the passes must be for the Spa, but a welcome pack would have explained this. Outside on the balcony, the furniture standard didn’t meet the same as the inside and some of the comfortable second hand chairs had no cushions, not too impressed. I tried ringing Manor Cottages 6 times over the next 3 days and emailed them 3 times for the WiFi code. I spoke with 2 different people who said they would forward me to someone that can help. The phone never got answered and never got any help. I paid a lot of money for the apartment, which included WiFi, an important service we required. Eventually getting more stressed I rang the Water Park number, who sent over someone to see if they could help, and guess what they knew the passcode, how easy was that. I was also disappointed there was in one key for the apartment, 2 would have been better, especially if we went out to do our own things. This holiday break was suppose to give me some stress release and relaxation, but for the first 3 days my stress level just got worse, so thank you Manor Cottages, thank you for not providing a welcome pack and not answering your phone, I will not be booking with you ever again and feel I am owed some compensation, which If you answer your emails, will pursue this further.

The property

Pochard is a contemporary apartment set overlooking a lake.

Located on the first floor, the apartment offers a very high standard of self catering accommodation ideal for small groups who are interested in staying at the prestigious Lower Mill Estate, a highly regarded region within the Cotswolds.

The property has two bedrooms and all 'mod cons' (incl games console!) necessary for an enjoyable and comfortable stay.

The access to a private deck area is a particular feature which we felt added to the appeal of the apartment, especially because of its view over Swillbrook Lake.

With access to the Spa and pool included, this is a great Cotswold retreat!

Also available is local bike hire for adults and kids and canoe, kayak and paddle board hire for adults and kids (subject to water temperature). All facilities are currently open at the estate for your use, but please note you MUST book a time slot prior to arrival to use most of the on site facilities.
